Once you have your overall market forecast, you will the search for investments that will provide the best opportunity to take advantage of your broad market analysis. {II}   Fundamental analysis is also a key indicator in a productive strategy. It is the cornerstone of investing.

Generally speaking, I am agree with you.Especially if one is running a real account, main capital should be large (as you said should be > 25K)

My observation(s) tell me that people come to forex markets for making money in a small time and with minimum effort and minimum capital. Most of them try to do trading as a part time job. (just like all large banks and investment companies - just joking but telling the truth)

These are my opinions... Good luck +22

That means it has no specific central market place. It is fairly distributed among all the biggest financial centers in the world. The biggest center, which is responsible for the main currencies cash flow is London. According to the Bank for International Settlements April 2010 survey, London accounts for about 37% of the daily transaction volume.
